Now that plastic cup is a funny thing, thats what caught my eye 1st of all. It's taken in a square a little to the west of the Gherkin building. The cup just caught my eye, sitting there surrounded by all these flowers I just felt I wanted to take a shot of it but didn't really want it in focus. Maybe it don't really work,but it was worth a shot.
The post box inclusion is something that I'm going to take as an idea, not literally, but the idea of dropping something into the background that instinctively tells the viewer where the shot was taken.
It's part of 'telling the story' - and it's really got me thinking - which is a good thing!
I like the cup too and it would have caught my eye as well. I'd probably have burnt in the bottom a bit to speed the passage of the eye through the picture though. It kind of feels like it needs a spot of vignette to me.
